A grand total of 69,526 applicants will be receiving the offer of a place in higher education. The number of applicants admitted this year is a new record: 3,086 more admissions than in the previous record year, 2016. The Minister for Higher Education and Science, Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen, is delighted by this increase.
It's very satisfying that so many people want to take a course in higher education, and are able to do so. In many ways, this is a very special time, because of COVID-19. More people than in previous years have applied for a place, so I'm delighted that we have been able to offer more places. Almost 70,000 admissions is an all-time record, so you're looking at a Minister for Education and Science who is really happy about this on behalf of Denmark as a whole, adds Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen.
